# Representation Theory of Lie Groups

Share this page *Edited by *
*Jeffrey Adams; David Vogan*

A co-publication of the AMS and IAS/Park City Mathematics Institute

This book contains written versions of the lectures given at
the PCMI Graduate Summer School on the representation theory of Lie
groups. The volume begins with lectures by A. Knapp and P. Trapa
outlining the state of the subject around the year 1975, specifically,
the fundamental results of Harish-Chandra on the general structure of
infinite-dimensional representations and the Langlands
classification.

Additional contributions outline developments in four of the most
active areas of research over the past 20 years. The clearly written
articles present results to date, as follows: R. Zierau and
L. Barchini discuss the construction of representations on Dolbeault
cohomology spaces. D. Vogan describes the status of the
Kirillov-Kostant “philosophy of coadjoint orbits” for
unitary representations. K. Vilonen presents recent advances in the
Beilinson-Bernstein theory of “localization”. And Jian-Shu Li
covers Howe's theory of “dual reductive
pairs”.

Each contributor to the volume presents the topics in a unique,
comprehensive, and accessible manner geared toward advanced graduate
students and researchers. Students should have completed the standard
introductory graduate courses for full comprehension of the work. The
book would also serve well as a supplementary text for a course on
introductory infinite-dimensional representation theory.

Titles in this series are co-published with the Institute
for Advanced Study/Park City Mathematics Institute. Members of the
Mathematical Association of America (MAA) and the National Council of
Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) receive a 20% discount from list

series co-published with the Society for Industrial and Applied
Mathematics (SIAM).*
